WHAT HAS FUELED YOUR COMPANY’S GROWTH? Argon Industries offers highquality contract manufactured metal components for the OEM industry at a price which is competitive in comparison to other premium-quality contract manufacturers in the market. Argon Industries’ explosive growth is attributed to our focus on providing the market-place high quality products with exceptional just-in-time deliveries. Argon Industries is ISO 9001:2000 certified. We incorporate an intense and tenacious focus on customer satisfaction with a high level of quality manufacturing equipment, workforce and management while maintaining and growing referral networks to generate new and repeat sales. Through significant investments in lean manufacturing, automated equipment, continuous process improvement, workforce cross-training and by having a diversified, experienced management team, Argon Industries has created an efficient, lean and enjoyable work environment. We build relationships with customers, not products, because value is fundamentally determined at the point of the end-user. As a result, we relentlessly invent and implement new concepts in customer value creation. We offer value-added services and business expertise to our customers. We integrate mobility and location-specific commerce into our business model and have implemented a true collaborative cellular or continuous flow manufacturing model. Our process development includes all internal departments, customers and suppliers. We give customers what they want, when they want it and at the most competitive cost.
DO YOU PLAN ANY CHANGES IN YOUR COMPANY IN THE UPCOMING MONTHS? In August we added our third robotic welding cell. Currently we are in the process of investigating additional automated equipment to expand our capabilities as well as
to improve our throughput of our current equipment and capabilities. In addition to adding new equipment, we are looking to expand our facility size, adding double the square feet we currently have. Employment growth is another priority in the upcoming months. We are currently running a campaign to increase our office staff by 10 percent and our manufacturing staff by 20 percent.
WHAT IS THE OUTLOOK FOR THE BUSINESS CONDITIONS OF YOUR INDUSTRY OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL MONTHS? We feel manufacturing will be strong through year-end. We have positioned Argon Industries with companies that place a high demand in customer service, flexible manufacturing and just-in-time deliveries. We have been successful in providing these services because we incorporate lean manufacturing practices, acquired the most technologically advanced equipment and hired and trained a highly skilled workforce. Our company philosophy is, “Nothing is Impossible.” By leading, managing and working with this philosophy, Argon Industries Inc. has achieved enormous success in the past and will fuel our future growth and success.
